Traveling lightly in your neighbor's yard
Burned out roman candle, calling cards
Someone forgot the golden rule
Let's go find another swimming pool

    General CommentYou're reading too deep into it. It's about pool hopping and someone ruining it by pissing in the pool. Hence, "someone forgot the GOLDEN rule, lets go find another swimming pool".

    General CommentA "roman candle" is a firework, and a "calling card" is like a signature that a criminal leaves behind to so that people know it was them and to taunt the police. So, I think that the burned out fireworks are their calling cards.
    The song is about kids pool hopping and partying in their neighbors' lawns, and they set off fireworks and leave them there as a calling card. "Someone forgot the golden rule" because they are treating their literal neighbors poorly,but "lets go find another swimming pool" suggests that, as young teenagers out to have some fun,they don't care and are going to continue their pool hopping. It's a song about the crazy, fun, irresponsible things they did as carefree teenagers :)

    General CommentAbout a kid sneaking around with drugs/alcohol.

    Burned out rolling candle = joint/blunt?
    Calling cards = drug dealer phone number?
    Someone forgot the golden one = Either leaving "evidence" or forgetting "The Golden Rule"
    Let's go find another swimming pool = going somewhere else to hide from parents
